      The chocolate fondue sounds interesting and tasty. It has been a long time since the last fondue party i attended. It helped bring back some pleasant memories. Chocolate, vegan or not, is tantalizing year round to give as a gift or just to show your appreciation for the other person. However, this Val-Day lens is very well done. Appreciate you sharing your lens. Thank You for stopping y my Quick-n-Easy Tapioca Pudding Recipe lens and giving it a "thumbs up. I really appreciate it. Hope you will enjoy the tapioca pudding.
